Illustrator Tom Whalen sells prints on Etsy in the Strong Stuff shop, including these two for Star Wars (sold out, sadly) and The Empire Strikes Back. See even more on his site or on DeviantArt. (via)
TheRaider.net reports that the legendary artist is retiring from illustration to spend time with his family and work on his own paintings. Struzan is reponsible for several iconic Star Wars and Indiana Jones movie posters, and even a few book covers (and stamps!) not to mention Blade Runner, Harry Potter, Hellboy, Back to the Future and hundreds of other films. Check out more of his work at DrewStruzan.com.
Illustrator Mattias has rounds out his charming Baroque Star Wars series with a few more character sketches (including Yoda, left) and an uncolored Death Star.
He also has prints available for purchase. Damn you, exchange rates!
